Julius Collins is a renowned singer in Minneapolis. Managed by Prince when he first moved to the city from Atlanta, his band Black Julius emerged on the scene with a blend of rock and funk. Next up was the formation of the phenomenal group, Greazy Meal, which was comprised of some of the best musicians in Minneapolis. They packed the local clubs to capacity and formed a following that is still dedicated to the music and energy they created on the scene.
